Manuel Lezcano de Orléans Macherey, and his wife Caroline, are the proud new owners of Casa Culinaria Don Gaspar, a luxury hotel in
Santa Fe. They purchased the property in January of 2017. Manuel was born in France and lived in Spain. His wife Caroline is from South America and holds a culinary degree. Neither Manual or Caroline are strangers to the hospitality industry. Previously they managed a family hotel in Barcelona, Spain. Most recently, they have been living in Mexico City, Mexico.

Manuel and Caroline are renovating Casa Culinaria Don Gaspar (formerly Don Gaspar Inn). They’ll add a commercial kitchen and plan to offer gourmet cooking classes, as well as enhance the extensive outdoor gardens. In the near future they will add a bar and new guest relaxation area. Their vision for Casa Culinaria Don Gaspar is truly creating a home away from home, where guests feel welcome. They plan to serve delicious cuisine, offer inspiring and fun cooking classes, and give guests a place to unwind and relax. The property is perfectly located just blocks from downtown Santa Fe.
The previous owners, Shirley Isgar and David Alford, originally owned the Main House and enhanced it over time. They eventually purchased two surrounding buildings. They currently still own our Sister Inns, Blue Lake Ranch, in Durango, Colorado, and Casa Blanca Inn in Farmington, NM. Casa Culinaria Don Gaspar is pleased to continue our association with these two wonderful hospitality properties.
